Guitar Building Supplies

“I can build anything”. With that statement, Mr. Paul Bigsby switched from building Crocker motorcycles to making musical instruments. The Bigsby vibrato tailpiece is a type of mechanical vibrato device for electric guitars. The device allows musicians to bend the pitch of notes or entire chords with their pick hand for various effects.  The Bigsby Vibrato was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is a technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. As the word and sound of these new steel guitars traveled, more players wanted one for themselves.
